The representative of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in El Salvador, Yvette Blanco, congratulated the Ministry of Education (Mined) for the decision to establish classes in face-to-face mode by 2023, since this promotes the development of skills and student competencies.
“Unicef applauds the decision to open schools 100% in person, since they represent a safe place for students to achieve their learning and where they also have access to protection, health, food, and psychosocial care services,” she posted on Twitter.
Blanco also highlighted the work carried out by First Lady Gabriela de Bukele to promote policies and laws that improve the integrity of children. This year sees the implementation of the Crecer Juntos Law, under which the Ministry of Education provides specialized early childhood education.
Similarly, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) highlighted the importance of food for children and adolescents in schools so that they can grow, develop, and protect themselves from diseases.
“We congratulate Minister Mauricio Pineda for promoting healthy diets in schools that allow children and adolescents to learn and develop fully.
FAO applauds the efforts to transform education and make it inclusive and sustainable”, published the FAO account on Twitter. The Government of the President of the Republic, Nayib Bukele, through the Ministry of Education, works to guarantee access and permanence in the educational system, raise the quality of the public system, provide the necessary technological tools, and provide specialized teaching attention.
In this sense, the Minister of Education, within the framework of International Education Day, which is celebrated on January 24, held a meeting with representatives of the first lady’s office and the Local Education Group (GLE) to show the My New School reform, which consists of a curricular renovation and the remodeling of the infrastructure of 5,150 public educational centers.
These interventions are executed under a modern pedagogical concept that favors learning.
